IKEA Fabric Love

I bought this fabric at IKEA a while ago, then kind of forgot about it.  I knew it needed to come home with me, even though I didn't know what I was going to do with it.  Then today, it dawned on me - it would make a perfect apron!

I LOVE each and every veggie character and scene....

PERFECT apron fabric!!

Today's Thrift Shop Haul!

Everything was 50% off today at my local thrift shop, so this is what $4.37 will buy you!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the design on this platter!!!  
I'll have to do some research on how to get rid of the stains.

I didn't need a heart-shaped cookie cutter, but it begged me to give it a good home, especially since today is Valentine's Day!  :)

This is too lovely for words....

I've been collecting these woven potholders, especially after making some of my own.  They give me warm fuzzies, way more than 10 cents worth!!

Isn't this a great potholder?!

It contains a fabulous collection of vintage fabrics,

not to mention the back!

Love this tin....

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Maybe wearing these earrings is to blame for all the snow we've been having??!!

Today's Thrift Shop Find

I bought this little vintage comforter at the thrift shop today for a mere $3.50!!  I love it!  It's so nicely done - the seamstress did a lovely job of selecting colors and creating a design out of the scrappy patches.

I love everything about it...

... the sheet she used for the backing,

the funky selection of fabrics...

... in blue, black and red, 

and the variegated yarn she used for tying.

What a fun quilt!
Happy quilter, happy day!


They're far from perfect, but at least I have two pairs of mittens for shoveling for a grand total of $1.75 total (the sweater was on sale for half price!).
